About Screenly

Screenly is a Raspberry Pi based digital signage solution for use by businesses of any type or size. Screenly supports full HD videos, display image content, and web page content in 1080p resolution, depending on the user’s digital signage screen or screens.

Via Screenly's CMS, users can build and manage their own digital signage network, and with Screenly's API, integrate directly into other solutions.

Key benefits of Screenly

  • Control all display content across one or multiple, multi-location screens from one dashboard, from anywhere.

  • Monitor the health of a digital signage network and get alerted via a custom status dashboard each time a digital sign experiences issues.

  • Assets are distributed and cached so that content keeps playing even if internet connection drops temporarily.

  • Screenly automatically and frequently sends security and software updates to devices, and is backed by Ubuntu Core technology.

  • An open-source version of Screenly - Screenly OSE - is available for free.

    Excellent

    Excellent

    Pros

    Really easy to use very functional. The fact that you can time and queue the digital elements is fantastic. The turnaround time from when the media is sent to when it actually plays is very impressive. We are very happy with our partnership with Screenly. The customer service is excellent with a "can do" attitude to solving any operational issues.

    Cons

    There is nothing that I dislike and at the cost it is better than anything other platform we have used on the market.

    Perfect for multi-location deployment

    We have 15 devices deployed in retail stores across the country and we rarely experience any issues.

    Pros

    It’s easily deployed, easily managed, and the user interface allows for easily configuring things like video playlists.

    Cons

    It’s still has some bugs and it would be nice to have a more robust scheduling apparatus. Occasionally the devices will drop off the network and have to manually rebooted.

    Beautiful screens, not-so-beautiful features

    Reviewed on 2020/12/30

    Pros

    The screens and resolution were beautiful on this product. Additionally, we were able to deploy hundreds of custom assets and playlists in a matter of hours.

    Cons

    We were siloed in to only using raspberry pi units and there were no transitions between graphics. When we changed the infrastructure of our wifi systems, the support documentation was zero help. We instead had to flash each of our 20+ units manually and reconfigure each on the new wifi. There should be an option built in to the ScreenlyOS image on the raspberry pi to modify wifi configs.

    Goodbye to Free

    Very disappointed that first they cancel their free one-screen option to new customers but then turn around and disable accounts for pre-existing customers like us. No warning either. I discovered by noticing nothing was on the display and then when logging in to see the “account disabled” notice. Nothing I can do except purchase their monthly package that was overkill for our small organization. Since we can’t afford to pay, I’m switching over to info-beamer.

    Pros

    Was a really great option for our non-profit that couldn’t afford another monthly cost.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of. It was easy to use and the free version had all the options we needed.
